What Scott said. While Mark's right that "lowest layer wins" would be 
logical, I think it would introduce yet another level of new-user 
confusion. Anyway, it's possible already to choose an existing image as 
an icon via the property inspector. Click the little button next to the 
icon ID field, choose "This Stack" from the popdown list, and click on 
the image you want to use.

If an image is static and only needs to respond to simple clicks or 
commands, I put a script in it. If I need scripted image changes 
(mouseovers, hiliting, state or status display, etc) I use a button.
